Anti Bedroom Tax march and what one?

Leithlurker Sun 31-Mar-13 12:00:31

So nobody either looks at this thread or went on an anti bedroom tax march interesting?

AuntieStella Sun 31-Mar-13 12:11:23

Perhaps try reposting in Politics or In The News?

Leithlurker Sun 31-Mar-13 12:33:52

Why?

DaffodilAdams Sun 31-Mar-13 14:44:12

Why is it interesting Leithlurker?

DaffodilAdams Sun 31-Mar-13 14:45:13

In fact why is it the either/or situation you presented in your second post?

Leithlurker Sun 31-Mar-13 14:52:21

It is interesting that for a board normally as busy as fwr it seemed that no one had any comment to make, until AuntStella did. Plus an apparently well known troll start 4-5? different threads after mine and on one something lit 12 replies. It struck me as being curious.

I could only think of the either or explanation, if there are others such as no one opened the thread to look at it until again Aunt Stella did, I find that interesting also. Do you have other explanations Daffodil?

DaffodilAdams Sun 31-Mar-13 14:58:02

Several.

Leithlurker Sun 31-Mar-13 14:59:32

Well I am glad that you such an active imagination, would you like to share or are you just going to remain enigmatic.

kim147 Sun 31-Mar-13 15:07:30

I don't actually understand your thread. Sorry.

DaffodilAdams Sun 31-Mar-13 15:14:28

Some may not want you/others to know
Some may simply not want to talk about it
Some may wonder why you want to know
Some may wonder why you've posted this in feminism (as AuntStella pointed out there are seemingly more appropriate topics to post this under)
Some may be suspicious, given your posting history in feminism

You have just posted this asking for personal information off people. This is one topic area where that is suspicious behaviour and where many are reluctant to divulge personal information, especially with trolls about.

Leithlurker Sun 31-Mar-13 15:14:53

Kim what part do you not under stand,
The original inquiry?
My second inquiry?
Or the discussion that came out of my second inquiry?

Leithlurker Sun 31-Mar-13 15:18:27

Personal information? Really, as personal as their real names or the street address which they live. Large public events with up to 3 thousand in Glasgow, yes I see what you mean easily identifiable.

kim147 Sun 31-Mar-13 15:19:19

I misread your title.

I read it as "So she went on a "

I think I'm starting to lose it.

Leithlurker Sun 31-Mar-13 15:20:24

As for this being an inappropriate place, are you saying that discussion of welfare reforms is not something that those that inhabit this board want to talk about?

Leithlurker Sun 31-Mar-13 15:21:27

No Kim I doubt it, if you are then many, many more are also losing it, what ever the it is or was.

DaffodilAdams Sun 31-Mar-13 15:26:13

OK you can be deliberately obtuse if you want to Leith. But yes asking where someone went on a march is asking for personal information and no I never said this section doesn't want to talk about welfare reforms. But you didn't start a thread to discuss welfare reforms. You started one to ask if and where people went for a march, without offering similar information for yourself and without offering an opener for discussion.

chibi Sun 31-Mar-13 15:32:05

who wants to know and why?

your reasons for wanting to know are unclear and become even more opaque with every post

and you seem a bit confrontational with it, too

what an interesting way to pass a sunday

hmm

Leithlurker Sun 31-Mar-13 15:39:46

I have seen threads started with "Who is going to so and so event, or who will be attending such and such women's day events. All of which from memory got good responses. That did not seem to cause any panic about personal information

So I am obtuse for not knowing that a general inquiry about people going on a march was personal information, yet although naming the march and the clue is in the name, people will not guess that the thread will in part be about welfare reforms? That really makes little sense.

Leithlurker Sun 31-Mar-13 15:42:47

Chibli I want to know is that good enough for you?

You think I am being confrontational, as said to me by MNHQ a while back "Posters express themselves on fwr sometimes in a robust manner, that does not mean they are being inflammatory or rude"

chibi Sun 31-Mar-13 15:44:15

your thread is called so who went on a.

as mercilessly enticing as that is, maybe it wasn't enough to provoke people into clicking

or maybe feminists are happy with the destruction of the welfare state, or whatever your premise happens to be.

chibi Sun 31-Mar-13 15:46:15

fine. i did not go on said march. i did not know there was one.

i hope this proves whatever you need it to prove, no doubt it will

enjoy your inferences!

perplexedpirate Sun 31-Mar-13 15:48:11

Leith, a guy over the road has been revving his motorbike for the last 20 minutes and I'm trying to have an Easter nap.
Nip over and tell him to piss off, would you? You're clearly spoiling for a fight, so it'd be good to do something constructive at the same time. smile

kim147 Sun 31-Mar-13 15:51:00

I've started a few threads and I get no response.
It is interesting to see which threads do and don't get responses.

EduCated Sun 31-Mar-13 15:56:27

Well, it wasn't a particularly engaging OP, was it? As pointed out, your title is one of one annoying cut off half way so I have to click and find out what you're talking about sort.

I did in fact click it the other day. I haven't been on a march, I didn't know any were happening, is this a national thing or are they isolated local ones? As I didn't go on one, I didn't answer.

Did you go on one OP? How was it? Why/what do you want to know? Are you thinking of going on one? Did you want to know what it was like?

Also I do think its an interesting question as to why you posted it in FWR? Do you think there's a particular relevance! (Im interested, btw, not being snarky)
